Wrecked My Car… Not My Day

So Yesterday wasn’t exactly my best day this year. I wanted to right this post because I feel it is important for everyone to be aware how unsafe texting and driving is. I’m sure many of you are aware of this, I’m even aware, but yet I was irresponsible enough to do it anyway.
So I’m sure you can all tell where I’m going with this.
I got in a car wreck. I did not get hurt, luckily. It could have been much worse. All it took was me looking down at my phone for a split second and wgen I looked back up I was about to rear end a truck that was hauling scrap metal and going about 40mph on the freeway that is 65mph.
Since they were going so slow and I atleast don’t speed, the point of impact wasn’t so bad. My airbag didn’t even deploy. I almost got out of the way in time too, but I was just to close and couldn’t cut the wheel fast enough.

The shredded part of my bumber is from all of the scrap metal in the persons truck. They were more concerned with getting to the junk yard then the accident.

It was a pretty crappy situation, I was only thankful I didn’t get hurt. I for sure learned my lesson on texting while driving, but I should of known better to begin with.
After I told my husband all about it and we got over it and accepted the damage that was done, I didn’t let it ruin my evening and I whipped myself up a new martini.
I did eat dinner, I was just still kind of stressed out and didn’t snap a picture. I was actually on my home from work to eat when the accident happened.

I made an orange strawberry martini and it was divine. My all time favorite martini is the Cheesecake Factory’s Strawberry Martini. It is 10 bucks and worth every penny. I wasn’t able to completely replicate that, but this was definately a good substitute.

Well remember everyone, don’t text and drive. I’ll go ahead and add in don’t drink and drive as well since I featured a beverage in my post. I pretty much always have a drink at home. If I do have a drink elsewhere I’m with my husband at a restaurant and he doesn’t drink and drives home.
Have a great Weekend!

    a few days before xmas 2010, i was rear-ended SUPER hard by a girl (UCLA student, 20 years old – i was 21) who was texting while driving. i was just sitting at a stop light, and she hit me going at full speed. everyone was fine, but my car had $10k worth of damage, and her car was TOTALED. all in all, it was just a huge hassle for everyone. i think she lost her insurance entirely, as it was the SECOND car she’d totaled in a few years. my car was in the shop for over a month. ugh.

    thanks for the reminder. glad you’re ok! i love dirty martinis or whipped vodka and diet root beer.. two totally different cocktails but both oh so tasty! 🙂

    • Oh wow whipped vodka and diet root beer? Sounds delish. I haven’t drank a soda in years, but that sounds yummy. Have you tried alcoholic whipped cream? Soo good.
      Thanks for the well wishes! I definately learned my lesson
